From the minute of arrival, you are made to feel welcome, especially by Brandon at the front desk. The hotel is wonderfully situated, across the street from the Visitor Center and from the downtown trolleys, which run all over free of charge, coming every 15-20 minutes. Breakfast was the usual Hampton Inn fare, plenty to eat to start off the day, and breakfast on the go available if you need to leave early. Brandon also recommended places to eat, because in this local area, the prices are ridiculously high. Best places to eat turned out to be in the Market area, where there is a good variety.
The only disappointment was the room itself - perfectly comfortable and with all amenities, but very small and dark, with only a tiny window - very unusual in Hampton Inns which I have used all over the States. I was only staying a couple of nights, so it wasn't a big deal, but had I been staying longer, I should have asked to move. Also, zircon only worked spasmodically and it was stifling in the room. No refrigerator, which is these sorts of temperatures would have been a boon.
But this is really nitpicking, and overall I enjoyed my stay.
